With the 220, Mercedes designers followed passive safety principles that were very modern for the time: a reinforced interior with steel tubes, a programmed deformation body and a collapsible steering column in the event of an impact. It was the first Mercedes-Benz to adopt these design criteria.
The mechanics was largely taken up by the W180 series, starting with the 2.2 liter engine, which was slightly revised to improve the delivery. The canvas mechanics also came from W180.
The refinement of the ball-driven steering system, contrasted a little with the 4-drum braking system, while the availability of the 3-speed automatic transmission, as an alternative to the manual 4-speed, gave prestige to the model.
Everything was then covered by an elegant American style body, characterized by the charming rear fins that earned her the nickname of Heckflosse (in German it means "rear fins").
Everything within the 220 was devoted to the maximum comfort possible at the time. There was a heating system in which the left and right area of the passenger compartment were made independent, in a sort of very first two-zone configuration.
In addition, the large interior was made very bright by the large glass surfaces that also contributed to optimal visibility at various angles.
It is in fact one of the forerunners of today's Mercedes S-Class.
